Sure! the sink hole that I normally drive over in order to park my car was filled yet again, some of the streets the I go down to go to work were eaten last week and now they're finally repaving them (starting yesterday), it took me an hr to get to work yesterday when it normally takes 10-15 minutes (there was a nasty accident on I-95 yesterday that shut down the northbound side so I had to go toward NYC and got stuck heading back toward downtown (the guy i think he was driving, worked right on the corner of the street that I work on)...umm what else? I think that's as exciting as things have gotten in the last week (besides our biggest customer adding more orders onto the already swamped shop)...

I'm ready for the weekend (unfortunately I have to clean and watch grandma tomorrow) but I'm ready! lol

Sounds... LIKE A GREAT WAY TO KICK OFF THE WEEKEND.

Anyway, I've been working VERY hard on my new game.

Hopefully it'll be out within a few days.

Tiny teaser for those who care!

Well, at least you don't actually have to go to work. I'm not sure about everyone else, but I have a 3 day weekend.

I don't have Monday off, which in a way is good because that means no phone calls from the customer, meaning we all can actually get something accomplished!

I dunno what the site looked like before but those tables aren't really doing it for me & the colors don't really do anything for me either (especially the background). Maybe if you had a solid black background it might be a little better but I don't know.

AUGH!!! TOO MANY TABLES!!!!

Anyways.... I suppose I'm a programming regular. So, here's my question: How would I go about making my own programming language? Would I start from binary or something?

it's cool but statements like this have always eluded me:
The time is 4:07, the browser you are using is Microsoft Internet Explorer and you have a screen resolution of 1280x1024.

yes I know what time it is, I know what browser I'm using, and I know my screen resolution. Do I really need a webpage to tell me that? :p

Yeah, ive been wondering about that for a while.

Oh, and your sites alright (doodle-flash.com) but the tables dont really do it for me.
If i were you, id go back to the drawing board.

It's just in case you turn into a brainless shit and forget what settings your computer has or what time it is.

I'm not calling you a brainless shit. It's just an example.

I think it looks pretty good but it says i'm using Netscape when I'm not i'm using FF, is this a bug?

No, apparently firefox uses a netscape engine or something so it still says netscape.

Same happens with me when in firefox, but it works for every other browser(i think...).

Still looks bad, sorry. It also took a little while for me to load it today, meaning get rid of the music. (that song is stupid anyway). I would try to stay away from a layout with tables and just use divs and css and go with a better design. Like I said yesterday background is also terrible because it's blurry, not sharp and it doesn't really go well because it's not a subtle gradient.

Let me put it that way... If you wrote a program in binary; it would take you 5 years to make a basic pong game.

I suggest assembly language! It's pretty complicated though, you need an excellent memory.

You could also make a language using C# or C++, In fact... You could even make your own language in Flash (although that would make it complicated)!

I liked Netscape but it took WAY too long to start-up. So I went back to IE. I can't stand the way FF displays web-pages progressively and how sometimes it doesn't display properly.

Why would you suggest Assembly language? And why would you need 'an excellent memory' to use it in the first place?

As for the real question, you should look into books on Compilers, language design books, etc. etc.. Two good ones are "Types and Programming Languages" (MIT Press) and "Compilers: Principles, Techniques, Tools" (If you want to buy it, which I suggest, wait a little, there's supposed to be a brand new edition of The Dragon Book coming out very soon (the last edition was written in the mid-80s.) There's a lot of things you have to consider during the design of a language, but it can be a great programming exercise to make a mini-language.
